Despite some killer jamming, this doesn't stand out to me as much as other shows. The soundboard accentuates the vocals, which are mostly horrible because they were using horrible mics, and also because they were just singing horribly. The best parts are in the 2nd set jam suite, of course.

What a killer Bertha to kick off this show. My first show. Sweet memories. Anyone ever notice how the beginning of Bertha is missing here? Does anyone have a copy of this show with the complete Bertha? I know there were tapers there that night.

Subject: If only...
...this show were in better quality, I personally think it would rank as one of the best of the spring tour. It's a fair shot better than the following nite (3/22), and that's saying something. Everything in this show is just wonderfully played, and there is a great, mellow, yet flowing and jazzy vibe to a lot of the music.

The hyper-jazz Playing and China>Rider, groovy Dark Star and Here Comes Sunshine, and energetic Eyes are all wonderful, The Playing and Eyes especially being some of my recent favorites of the tour. This show just grows on me with each listen.

Therefore, despite the mix and sound issues, I'm still giving it a five based on the fact that it's extremely underrated, and the performances are just phenomenal. Check it out, you won't regret it!

Subject: A better seed, but the flaws are a killer
While this is definitely a better seed than the Cotsman version -- and kudos to Charlie, as always -- both suffer from some pretty horrendous oversaturation on the vocal tracks. Donaa's bad enough, but when her mike is clipping like a mofo and all the vocals sound like they're being played through torn speaker paper, it's a major drag.

Too bad because, as others have noted, this was a great performance, and the Dark Star pushes new heights.

"East Coast Magic."

"A must have show."

The GRATEFUL DEAD sound like they really enjoyed performing before this NY Crowd 36 years ago.

I highly recommend adding this show to your 1973 GRATEFUL DEAD collection, it is superb.

5 stars for the mix, recording, performance, and Charlie Miller...okay so there is a litte hum to the tape, BFD and the vocals get too hot and distort a little...but the performances are excllent.

Get both shows from the Utica Memorial Auditorium March 21 and 22, 1973.

Get it while you can, get it while it's free, get it now or you'll be sorry...

Eat, Drink, Be Merry and Listen to the GRATEFUL DEAD.

Thanks for the Love from 1973.

PS: I recommend clicking on Charlie Miller's name and collecting all his GRATEFUL DEAD shows, he has impeccable taste.

PSS: For easy streaming and/or downloading usesrs of Windows XP should be viewing this web-page with RealPlayer.

Subject: Who is Charlie Miller...
...And where do I send a case of his favorite beverage? Some great '73! I have trouble with this rating thing because even an 'average' (3star) show is pretty friggin' good and more than worth grabbing. Thanks again, Mr. Charlie.

Wow!
Some of the most beautiful playing I've ever heard from Bobby during Here Comes Sunshine.
Bob seems much louder in the mix during this song and is playing some great stuff.
Haven't listened to the rest of the show but based on this one song and looking at the setlist I would download this already.

I have not heard the entire show but what I heard sounded like an improvement over the previous tape in circulation. This show, although completely underrated, is a gem. More later after I listen to it completely.
